USA Today: Pete Carroll admired by '9/11 Truth' movement
January 30, 2015

PHOENIX — Pete Carroll is a conspiracy theorist, at least that is how the conspiracy theory goes. And it is one that has gained the Seattle Seahawks coach an unlikely following from the "9/11 Truth" movement in the lead-up to his attempt to win back-to-back Super Bowls.

Two years ago, Carroll met with former Army chief of staff and four-star general Peter Chiarelli and, according to Deadspin citing "sources," brought up many popular conspiracy theories concerned with the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center and quizzed Chiarelli about their veracity.

When asked by USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday about the "9/11 Truth" movement and supporters who back him, Carroll made no attempt to deny his interest.

"Any notoriety is good I guess," Carroll said, when told by USA TODAY Sports how he had become a favorite among Truth activists. "I will always be interested in the truth, yeah."

The 9/11 conspiracy movement is polarizing, so having even the implied support of a high-profile and successful figure such as Carroll has been a welcome boost.

"He kind of became an instant celebrity in the 9/11 Truth movement," said Danny Torgersen, a member of the 9/11 Studies and Outreach group at Arizona State. "He's won the Super Bowl once, he might win it again. That's lots of credibility and popularity."

Last year's Super Bowl came with a surprising conspiracy twist, when a Brooklyn man, Matt Mills, managed to bluff his way into the media entrance at the end of the Seahawks' 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos.

As Malcolm Smith was being presented with his MVP trophy, Mills rushed onto the podium and grabbed the microphone before security could intervene. "Investigate 9/11," he said. "9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government."

Unsurprisingly, Mills' stunt created a flurry of activity on social media, which for him, was mission accomplished.

"Really my memory of last year is that 'Investigate 9/11' was trending worldwide the next day," Mills told USA TODAY Sports in a telephone interview. "I am pretty proud to have helped make that happen.

"And I believe that the implied support of Pete Carroll does help our cause. Every single 9/11 skeptic that I have ever spoken to has great respect for him."

Carroll is an intriguing man with strong views. Last year, he told the Seattle Times his feelings on how the Iraq conflict could have been handled differently in an impassioned interview.

"Let's say, after all the stuff that we heard about what was going on in Iraq, we sent 10,000 people to Iraq as peacefully as we could go," Carroll said. "And we walked wherever they would let us go, and we just talked to people and listened to what their issues were.

"And then we tried to figure out the best way we could support them and change things, as opposed to bombing (expletive) thousands of people with shock and awe. It might've taken us longer to influence change, but nobody would've died."

Those comments further emboldened some in the Truth community, feeling a sense of connection with Carroll as someone who did not automatically agree with the actions and statements of the U.S. government.

"What Pete Carroll is essentially doing is throwing the challenge flag on the official story that we've heard so far," said Steven Cohn, a member of the same Arizona State group as Torgersen.

This Super Bowl has had plentiful theories of the football variety, thanks to the oddball tale of Deflategate, and whether the New England Patriots took advantage of underinflated footballs during the AFC Championship game.

Issues surrounding footballs, Brady and Belichick have dominated the news media agenda this past week and got the nation's sports fans talking, while frustrating 9/11 skeptics who struggle to be taken seriously.

"The 9-11 conspiracy theory, if you talk about the science of what happened and the way the towers fell, and the 2,300 architects and engineers that are calling into question the official findings, you're labeled a conspiracy theorist," Cohn said.

"But if you accuse an entire team of deflating footballs or spying on the other team, then that's just being a sports fan."

This is good... surprising

Great to see this make it into a large circulation paper like USA Today.

Original Deadspin article from 2013

Is Pete Carroll A 9/11 Truther?

For the curious, here's the Deadspin article that started this whole thing.

"The sit-down between [retired general Peter] Chiarelli and Carroll started off normally enough. They talked about the team, and then about head trauma. Chiarelli, who commanded the American forces in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom II, talked about the brain injuries he had seen there. But Chiarelli's mention of Iraq sent Carroll in another direction: He wanted to know if the September 11 attacks had been planned or faked by the United States government."

Another call to action

Thanks to Pete Carroll and 911 Blogger for staying strong in the pursuit of the truth. Until we have a true scientific and honest investigation of what really happened on 9/11, who was behind it and until they are held accountable, the rest of the political noise is just that-- useless noise. I cannot accept that false flag terrorism and murdering those who threaten to expose the "official story" as a lie is necessary to run a country. We all need to stay vigilant, to question and demand the truth. Anyone with good ideas on how to move forward, please comment.

Close to a "Superbowl ad" for the Movement

I love seeing Press, especially like this!

That is "advertising" without the cost.

It may not be a superbowl ad, but it is as close as we get with zero dollars.

What is the amount you would have to pay me to watch the game? How the Super Bowl Promotes Empire, War & Taxpayer Theft

Why Would Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll Question 9/11?

The coach of the Super Bowl winning Seattle Seahawks is in the media again as his team prepares for a second championship game. Coach Pete Carroll is getting special attention in the news because he is known to have questioned the official account of the 9/11 attacks. Even today, he is still looking for answers about those crimes, saying, “I will always be interested in the truth.”

Good Job, ASU

These guys are the top college 9/11 group in the country.  From their email:  

In today's Sports section, USA Today has run a story featuring 9/11 Studies Club at ASU members rooting for Pete Carroll in the Super Bowl! The accompanying video is even better!!

This is the first time our ASU student club has received national press! Our previous encounter with "the media" was an interview by the State Press, in which we were misquoted in a sloppily written article that portrayed us as fringe. This one was professional and much more satisfying! Pick up your copy in stores or read it here online- and share it with people you know!!

Thanks to all our student members, volunteers, and supporters for making our club such a success! Spread this far and wide, and let's keep the momentum moving forward!

We are planning to march with our banners and signs around the premises of the U of Phoenix stadium at the Super Bowl!! To join us in making history, fb message us or reply here for meetup details... this is the biggest stage on Earth, folks!


Great action planned!!
